that's a really weird PDX venue for him to be playing

Clay, Thursday, 26 April 2012 04:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

ha yeah, i didn't even notice the venue. i'll more likely see them in seattle. and the crocodile isn't ideal, really, but it'll do.

Slims sucks too, tbh, though there are suckier SF venues

sarahell, Thursday, 26 April 2012 05:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

Not many though.

Jamie_ATP, Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah, i heard about that and am VERY interested in hearing

lol, almost as surprising as the fact that they're gonna be on their own album

Lex did a great review of their album on the Guardian, definitely going to buy it after reading this:

Here he is with the classic "Poème Électronique." Good track (Marcello Carlin), Friday, 27 April 2012 15:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

A good point/counterpoint:

bendy, Friday, 27 April 2012 16:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

heavy repeat favorites at the moment in order of preference:

Hustle Bones
The Fever
I've Seen Footage
Get Got
Double Helix
Punk Weight

I don't think Lost Boys and Blackjack are gonna click for me unfortunately but the rest of the album has potential

and not to pick a fight with you whiney but the emphasis on this being rap is weird to me as hip hop is really not how i'm identifying this internally
just feels like fleet footed hardcore to me

the thought of l.a. reid air-drumming to death grips is p amazing

ogmor, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

i care about lex's opinion about death grips about as much as i care about tuomas' opinion about cabin in the woods

congratulations (n/a), Friday, 27 April 2012 18:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

mb view it as a tiny bit of karmic payback for clueless rnb reviews by indie critics filled w/ unenlightening reference points that only underline their inability to hear it properly

ogmor, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

okay the first 20 seconds of this are already more interesting than what I hear od Exmilitary yesterday

i agree with whiney that the anarchic energy is tamed more than just somewhat but there's a lotta good good in here

lex getting assigned the death grips album is my favorite lex assignment since lex got assigned the klaxons debut

J0rdan S., Friday, 27 April 2012 18:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's kind of funny seeing someone who champions Cassie use "one-note" in a pejorative manner

this is kind of hitting me like Shabazz Palaces on PCP, which is a concept that gets better and better the more I think about it

rap is a big part of the dna though. it's a hybrid, not a this or that.

lex's review seems pretty positive to me, y'all are being a little "omg you brought down the avengers' rotten tomatoes score!!" at him

some dude, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't understand how can you identify this as "not hip-hop"? I think referencing MC 900 Ft Jesus as a very canny move as this really does slot into that type of weirdo industrial-goth-hop vein that nu-metal/hip-hop hybrids did their damnedest to destroy.

Then again, I've called a whole bunch of bizarre things hip-hop (like "Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors") so maybe that's just one of my default filters.

xp: It is pretty positive for a 2/5 review, I'll give you that.

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Friday, 27 April 2012 18:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

ok maybe not 'pretty positive' but it's far from a hatchet piece

xpost -- i didn't see the numerical score on the review, admittedly

some dude, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

it was either 2 stars or 3 stars and 3 stars seemed way too generous for an album that in all honesty i am never going to play again and frequently didn't actually enjoy in any way

my drake commission must be an all-time favourite

whaaaat?

sarahell, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's all thrashy punk to me but i'm not picky what you call it as long as you scream it hoarsely when you call it that

"in this super-sexy postracial age" (forksclovetofu), Friday, 27 April 2012 18:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

the rhythms and sonic "palette" are totally not thrashy punk. do you listen to much thrashy punk?

sarahell, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

3 of 5 is the default "this is not bad for what it is, but it's definitely not for me, idgi" score. it's like abstaining from passing judgment. 2 of 5 is a slam.

"i'm not picky what you call it"

"in this super-sexy postracial age" (forksclovetofu), Friday, 27 April 2012 18:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

haha a SLAM ooh

like i said i didn't see the star rating when i said what i said though

some dude, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

thank you ma'am

Choc. Clusterman (contenderizer), Friday, 27 April 2012 18:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

lol if two stars is a SLAM what is one star, as per drake and klaxons?

star ratings and scores are kind of not the point anyway but it seems fair for "some elements i really like but overall i'm not feeling this"

liberté, égalité, beyoncé (lex pretend), Friday, 27 April 2012 18:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

one star is for me to poop on

Choc. Clusterman (contenderizer), Friday, 27 April 2012 18:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

the drums/beats are less pronounced on this than on ex-military ... at least on first listen.

5) holy shit!
4) good shit
3) shit, i dunno
